Apparently net neutrality will have an impact on Verizon's future investments--much as it will for other telcos--Verizon CFO Fran Shammo has clarified.
Carriers sometimes tout the maximum speeds their networks can deliver to subscribers. T-Mobile US, for example, claims that customers are seeing real-world peak downlink speeds of up to 145 Mbps in markets where it has deployed at least 15x15 MHz of spectrum for LTE. But how do the carriers really stack up when it comes to maximum speeds?
Verizon may still be seeing slow growth in the enterprise space, but it's starting to see some potential light at the end of the tunnel that could bring it back into profitability over the next year.
In the LTE downlink speed race, Verizon Wireless is the top carrier, taking a lead over competitors T-Mobile US, AT&T and Sprint.
AT&T Mobility plans to make its data throttling policy more uniform next year for customers on legacy unlimited data plans, regardless of what kind of smartphone they are using, according to an Ars Technica report.
Verizon and Cox Media Group have ended a broadcast retransmission impasse that kept Fox affiliate WFXT-TV off the program guides of 400,000 FiOS subscribers in Boston and Rhode Island since Thanksgiving Day.
Wireline revenue will continue to decline by 1 percent in 2014 and 2015, according to credit rating firm Moody's. However, the rate of decline should improve as telcos like AT&T and Verizon see growth in residential TV and broadband services.
Verizon's ongoing war of words with Hopewell Township, N.J.'s officials over telephone service quality and lack of fruitful broadband service shows that consumers' desire for high speed wireline broadband is just as prevalent in rural markets as it is in large cities.
Colocation revenues continue to rise, a trend that Synergy Research Group said continued into the third quarter with the United States, Japan, United Kingdom and China being the dominant regions of growth.
Verizon is refuting charges made by local officials that it has turned its back on Hopewell Township, N.J.'s copper-based network while not providing its next-gen fiber-based FiOS service.
